Santa Pola Museum of the Sea


The history of Santa Pola

The museum is located in the Fortaleza Castle, a 16th century building, an example of Renaissance military art.

It is set up as a monographic exhibition, focused on the history of Santa Pola, with six main themes: prehistory, the Iberians, the “portus ilicitanus”, the fortification of the coast, fishing and the salt flats. Some of the pieces on display are household items such as looms, punches, ornaments, amphoras and mosaics. With a didactic configuration, it has high-tech systems and includes an audiovisual room showing documentaries.
